Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah is the best player in the world following his stellar performance against Watford on Saturday afternoon. 

The forward put in a show-stopping performance to help Liverpool win 5-0 – scoring a mesmerising goal in the 54th minute and setting up two others.

Klopp was somewhat impressed with Salah’s incredible solo effort for Liverpool’s fifth and final goal, claiming the Egyptian was on better form than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Having collected a pass from Roberto Firmino on the edge of the box and beaten Juan Hernandez, Juraj Kucka and Craig Cathcart to find the back of the net, Klopp couldn’t help but praise the 29-year-old after his goal.   

Klopp told BT Sport: ‘His performance was massive today. The pass for the first goal was great and the second goal was special. 

He is top. We all see it. Who is better than him? We don’t have to talk about what Messi and Ronaldo have done for world football and their dominance. But right now, he is the best.’

The Liverpool manager went on to suggest there is more to come from his Egyptian star. He added: ‘Salah is in his age where you can still improve, and he’s doing that constantly. 

‘You saw the first goal that he set up for Sadio today, that is an outstanding pass. He brought that, I don’t know, from the summer break. After that, he started doing these kinds of things.

‘How I said, we don’t have hours and hours and hours to train different things. But the boys improve their game by themselves. 

‘The consistency he delivers, all this kind of stuff, maybe people just now start seeing it – it was always there. He plays for us for five years now but it’s absolutely incredible the way he performs since he’s here.

‘He’s in the top, top five since he is at Liverpool pretty much. And now he is the best in that moment. 

‘The big thing between Cristiano and Messi was that nobody had a doubt about it for years, but Mo is already on the top level for years as well and there’s still a lot to come from him because of his desire. He just wants to perform on a top-class level.’

Salah’s solo strike marked his 10th goal of the season – having scored in Liverpool’s last eight games. The Egyptian has also registered six assists in his last 15 Premier League appearances.    

Salah will be looking to continue such fine for against Atletico Madrid in Liverpool’s Champions League fixture on Tuesday.
